What’s Black and White and Read all over…

….why, my blog post of course? *Waits for the groans to subside* Well, happy Thursday everyone! Trust me, my bad joke is not in vain, as this week, my blog post really is black and white…with a little bit of RED all over. I’m channeling my inner rockabilly, black and white movie star this week, both literally, and figuratively.

B&W1It all started with my dress. Before I go on, let me start by saying I got all my fabulous finds on the Marketplace, kinda. I’ll explain what the kinda means, a little bit later. Close-ups of each item are in the collage below. Oh yes, back to the dress. This gorgeous, retro coat/dress is from Angel DELUXE, and you can find it HERE on the Marketplace, for only L$9. It’s called the Poablack Rockabilly Coat, and it’s kind of like a wearable demo, except you can also get a demo for free if you’d like to try it on first. There are other versions of this beauty available, just not for the sweet L$9 price! It is mesh, and fits the standard sizes 🙂

My next retro-esque item is from [BE]lieve, and it is these sexy red heels I am sporting. When I saw the polka dots, while scrolling through pages and pages of shoes, I knew these were the ones. The aptly named Red Spiked Bow Heels are for SLink mid feet, and are non-rigged mesh, so you adjust their positioning if need be. I think they are a steal at only L$20, and the Marketplace link for them, is HERE. As an aside, the listing for these shoes says they are a 24hr promo only…but, I got them on Aug 5th, and as of today, they are still the same price. So they might be a permanent promo, or it’s just taking the creator awhile to change the price again, and if that’s the case, don’t wait to grab them if you love them like I do! I mean come on….spiked bows!

The last item I am featuring is my beautiful grey-toned skin. Now, this is where the ‘kinda’ comes in. You can find the lovely Film Noir Dame skin from Oddment on the Marketplace for a small sum of L$30 HERE. In the interest of full disclosure…I have actually had this skin in my inventory for many, many years, almost as long as I’ve been in SL. Do not let this persuade you that the skin is old and outdated…even after all this time, it is still beautiful. So no, there are not any appliers provided, however, a grey-tone is super easy to match, trust me! I almost did not need to use the ankle and wrist tattoo layers to blend my hands and feet, they were so easily matched. I have gotten a lot of wear out of Ms. Film Noir, and was super excited to see it still available, when I just happened across it recently, in a random search on Marketplace. Hooray!

B&W2

With a few more added touches (a few FabFreely priced, L$75 or under) to complete my outfit, I think I totally rocked my rockabilly/retro tv movie star look! Don’t you? How lucky was I to find a red phone booth for my main picture? LOL. With the fogginess of the W/L setting I chose, I felt like I was in a horror movie, with a monster, or zombie ready to pop out from behind the booth at any second! OK, now I need popcorn, this sounds like a great movie night! *grins*

OK lovelies, that is it for my post this week. I already have some thoughts in mind for next weeks post, so you keep an eye out next Thursday! Until then, TTFN.

Quoth the Raven… Nevermore..

Its time for the TWISTED HUNT again! Running until 31st March, the evilest hunt as returned for its Spring edition and this time its theme is Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven”! Be prepared for some hard work in this hunt.. the designers are devious when it comes to hiding their little red and black spinning hunt boxes and there are tricks galore along the way including boxes that are decoys, boxes that will taunt you for finding the wrong one, moving boxes and even mazes! Be aware also that those who use the area search to find their items are going to be foiled as designers rename parts of their store so that you still have to search! Mwwahahahahaa!

The starting point for the hunt is at DV8.. are you ready to hunt through 218 stores of mischief and mayhem? Continue if you dare… Here are some of the things you can find along the way!
